obama care yesterday blaming the insurance companies. i mean, come on. >> well, it's not the insurance company. and the reason, and now it's being characterized as political fear. the reason that the liar in chief lied about this, he knew it would never pass if he told the american people the truth. if he had said to them, you can keep your plan unless we determine it's a substandard plan, well, that's like somebody saying, well, your car is substandard so we're going to crush it into a block of metal, throw it in the junk yard and force you to buy a cadillac. what if you can't afford the cadillac? what if you were perfectly happy with the car you had before. except now they've done it with health insurance. it's absolutely critical for people. >> julie, do you think they thought nobody would ever find out the truth? >> i don't know what they thought. quite honestly, the reason they're in this pickle right now, and they definitely are, is the fact they didn't sell this properly in the first place. there's good reason why they're doing what they're doing. why they couldn't lev
